I played a 3056 IM! And I *was* strategically winning!

clock is more powerful than you think maybe, but gg. I got 2200 bullet and i pretty much only know how to move pieces fast and premove things

but 3000+ is top2 apparently :D

@MohammedElasha , @Sarg0n Um... so you're telling me you've never seen a bullet game go to endgame? I'm pretty sure I've seen thousands that have. Strategy absolutely matters in bullet. The center was locked. Tactics were quite limited. If I could've handed it over to a 2200 player (with clock times magically made equal), I expect he would've won the position pretty easily.

That said, I *thought* I was pretty clear in my OP that obviously I wasn't winning in any real world sense of the term, obviously with the clock strategy he was employing in a locked position like that there's no way in hell a 1300 like me could've found the correct moves in time and played it out to victory. I'm not delusional. I mean, he's a frickin' 3000+.

@KJVo Wow, I didn't know he was that high. Cool.

I mean yeah, if this guy was 2700 I'm not sure I would've mentioned it (though that's still really really crazy strong) but I was just gobsmacked staring at this 3000 rating out of nowhere in a tournament, then even more confused when he didn't vaporize me instantly.

(Yeah yeah, I know he wasn't playing at his most serious and yes I know time is everything in bullet, etc. disclaimers etc. This was just a unique experience for me.)

You can't post in the forums yet. Play some games!
